The forthcoming original anime film, “Bloody Escape -Jigoku no Kōsōgeki-,” is set to make its highly-anticipated debut in Japan come January 2024.
The film’s tantalizing announcement video hints at an intriguing premise: “androids vs. vampires vs. yakuza.”
This captivating narrative revolves around Kisaragi, the android protagonist, who finds himself pursued by an organization of immortal vampires, all driven by a nefarious ambition to conquer a divided Tokyo.
